GM has really pushed Equinox sales since the Cruze and other sedans are dead ducks walking. Offering 1 5T, 2.0T, and 1.6T diesel, it is selling right with the Honda CR-V 1.5t, but at $5,000 less in the first full year of production.
Remember too that the Buick Verano tripled Acura ILX sales back in the day with the A3 being much more expensive. The Verano was discontinued in the states shortly after the Encore came here so there must be some demand for small, inexpensive luxury.
The Encore is top rated subcompact with the Audi Q3 but tops out where the Q3 starts, which doesnt hurt.
